The Lebanon Kiwanis Club needs extra volunteers to help some local kids get a chance at Christmas shopping.
The club is planning its annual Shop with Kids event Dec. 7, 8 and 9 mornings and afternoons, and is looking for some adults to help the children with their shopping.
“Lebanon Kiwanis has a shopping program this time of year that provides less fortunate children in our community with new, nice, and warm clothing,” Sean Clearbrook of the Lebanon Kiwanis Club said. “Our club actually has fundraisers and collects donations all year long to pay for this program. Around $30,000 is raised to provide $100 worth of new clothing for just under 300 kids.”
Anyone interested in volunteering to help out can call 417-594-0810. Information is also available on the Lebanon Kiwanis Facebook page. Signups are available at signup.com/go/EkrMMCY.
